Mega Man Universe based on Mega Man 2

Levels from NES classic will feature.

The core campaign in Capcom's upcoming Mega Man Universe will be a remake of Mega Man 2, the game's producer has revealed.

Speaking in an interview with Joystiq, Capcom's Akiko Ito said, "The base story and the base game is taken from Mega Man 2.

"Basically, we're going to create the stages from Mega Man 2 faithfully in this new style, and you can play them as is, or you can customise different sections of them; or you can customise all of it if you want to. So pretty much you can do whatever you'd like with the stages. Or you can start from scratch and build your own."

Unveiled in July, Mega Man Universe will also allow you to play as other Capcom heroes such as Arthur from Ghost 'N' Goblins and Ryu from Street Fighter. Ito wouldn't confirm if whether any other familiar faces will appear.

"We're still in the middle of thinking about all that. We're still planning it out. Actually, one of the things we want to ask... what kind of stages would you like to see? What kind of characters would you like to see in our game?"

Mega Man Universe will hit PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade on an as yet unannounced date.
